2019 Lord Mayor’s Cup Odds

The winter’s latest Lord Mayor’s Cup 2019 betting markets and links to the odds on the mile feature at Eagle Farm at Ladbrokes.com.au will be available below the week of the race.

2019 Lord Mayor’s Cup Field

The Lord Mayor’s Cup field attracts a quality line-up of winter milers that may have had a Sydney lead-up run in the Scone Cup two weeks before over the same distance or be coming off a Queensland lead-up at the Gold Coast from the start of the month in the Listed Prime Minister’s Cup (1400m).

The official 2019 Lord Mayor’s Cup Final Field & Barriers are set for release by Queensland Racing  on the Wednesday of race week and will be published in full below.

The Lord Mayor’s Cup 2019 field is down to 15 runners with the early withdrawal of Cool Chap and Valentino Rossa from the line-up. Chris Waller’s flying Le Juge chases a fifth win on the trot having narrowly taken out the BRC Chairman’s Handicap last start, but it is stablemate Tom Melbourne dominating the markets.
